My Favorite Sight On A Winter Day

February 5, 2014

This was what caught my eye as I drank a cup of coffee this afternoon.

When I was a boy there would be days when red cardinals would sit on the evergreens back home, and be a reason for everyone to gather at the window to take a look.  They were not everyday sightings, but when one landed in the midst of winter with white snow as a back-drop always meant that one took time out to see the beauty of Mother Nature.

All these years later the sight is still one that makes whatever else is happening come to a stop for a couple minutes as nothing else matters than the bright red against the pure white snow.

    When we feed our birds kindly purchase ‘Black Oiled Sunflower Seeds’.
    The ‘Wild Bird Seed Mix’ is mostly milo which birds don’t consume and merely kick out of the feeders to the delight of squirrels on the ground.

    An enjoyable winter bird, the chickadee, require about 220 black oiled sunflower seeds a day to survive a fridge night.

    Fill the feeders and enjoy. skip.
